While everyone is compiling their resolutions and focusing on all the things that they will “do” in 2009, I am putting together my “to don’t” list. These are the behaviors and actions I will hopefully stay away from in the new year. So, in 2009 I will NOT:
Set unrealistic or unfair expectations of myself. Say, “yes” to everything without first assessing the emotional, professional, personal, karmic ROI.
Solely focus on short-term benefits unless it is a pathway to accomplishing long-term goals.
Count on anything before it is a reality.
Forget to network because it often benefits someone other than myself.
Stop critically thinking, and refrain from always shooting holes in others’ ideas.
Lose sight of the fact that I can replace my job but not my family.
I am sure there are more,,,any thoughts?
